A safety app ‘SafeUP’ allows women and girls to plan and share their journeys on public transportation with real-time arrival information

SafeUP is a new startup leading a community safety app which enables women and girls to crowdsource their safety and protect one another in real-time.

Their partnership with Moovit, which is a popular creator of an urban mobility app, will allow members to easily plan their journeys and navigate public transportation while sharing their safety status.

In honour of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, this app design furthers safe accessibility to public transportation, with access to other additional opportunities for employment, education, social activities, and more to come.

Women are more likely to walk and take public transport as their means of transportation, but, according to the ONS, nearly 50% of women feel unsafe while doing so. The figure is even higher among females aged 16 to 34, which is currently at 60%.
